Touring Liverpool with a Beatlemaniac son

The omnipresent logo is the tablature for the jangling opening chord of “A Hard Day’s Night.” That Beatles classic plays over and over in the lobby. Beatles portraits decorate the rooms. Beatles music fills a stairway plastered with pictures that tell the Beatles story as you climb. Beatles-themed bars and restaurants offer more Beatles, Beatles, Beatles, and Beatles.

We haven’t even left the Hard Days Night Hotel, and Alex, my teenage son, is already having the splendid time Liverpool guarantees for all who come to immerse themselves in all things moptop.
